In theory you should be able to make this game look like Oblivion. All the data is there, you just need some smart algorithms to interpolate more/natural detail between the base blocks. I'm not sure Java is up to that task though, you'd probably want compiled code for those kind of tasks.

Java certainly isn't up to it.

Eventually there will be clients written using other game engines, I just hope that Notch is willing to work with them, and as long as they don't charge, allow them - after all, he can still charge the fee for the "subscription" which is then enforced via authentication through his website.
